She's back! Beginning on Thursday, Dec. 12, fans of Jacqueline MacInnes Wood will get their wish. She will return to her role as Steffy on The Bold and the Beautiful -- and it may be just in time -- now that Liam (Scott Clifton) has issued Hope (Kimberly Matula) an ultimatum, telling her it is time to get married and ditch Wyatt (Darin Brooks).
But don't get too excited. Jacqui has not resigned a long-term contract, so she may be back just long enough to mess with Liam and Hope's relationship -- and, I'm betting, Quinn (Rena Sofer) will be very glad to have the help.
Of course, one of the reasons that Steffy may not be staying longer is the the issue of her infertility still hangs over the possibility of Steffy and Liam reuniting. If and when Jacqui decides to come back full time, there is always the possibility of surrogacy.
During her absence, Jacqui hosted the new eight-episode, half-hour E! series Party On, which will take viewers to exclusive resorts and gorgeous beaches around the world to soak up the local party scene.
